grebe's chick

By macdaniel
In de middle of nowhere I became rather amused by observing a raising analogy: the chick persevered in the fondness to sit on mum's back while she clearly displayed signs saying, "hey, ain't you becoming a bit too old (and heavy) for this behaviour".

kind thanks for looking and appreciations
